I Was Just

Every once in a while a phrase comes along that you wonder where it came from and when it will go away. My day went a little something like this...

"I was just... looking at the pony fruit snacks."
"I was just... looking for Monkey." (as toys are thrown wily nily out of the box)
"I was just... looking at the cake."
"I was just... touching the pitcher of juice." (balanced precariously on the edge of the counter)
"I was just... wiping Lily's face." (with her foot)
"I was just... tapping Lily's head." (again, with her foot)
"I was just... looking at the treasure chest."
"I was just... pulling Aggie's tail."
"I was just..." Grinding the croutons into the chair, shaking applesauce off my hand, hiding so Mommy couldn't put me on the potty. Basically, you name it, she "was just" today.

On the other hand, she took a 3 hour nap and I was able to get quite a bit of scrapbooking done in that time. Even though Lily didn't nap at the same time, I was able to keep Lily entertained while I worked.

"I was Just"
That reminds me of the title of my cop stories book. All people about to get in trouble with the police start the story/lie off with the same thing "I was Just"
just minding my own busnisess, walking to my car, having a smoke, .... "When all of a sudden"
(That will be volume 2, when all of a sudden)
And NO, she didnt learn that from me telling stories

Now that I read "Daddy's" comments, I realize I sound like a criminal...
"There I was in bed, just sleeping and minding my own business when all of a sudden someone starts in with the old wink wink nudge nudge..."

Honest officer! I AM innocent....
